MARION, N.C. — A bus carrying elementary school students back from a field trip crashed Wednesday, injuring more than two dozen people aboard, officials said.
None of the injuries were life-threatening, officials said.
The bus was carrying 54 second-graders from Nebo Elementary School and seven adults when it went off the road south of Marion in western North Carolina, the officials said.
The shoulder was soft from recent rainfall, and when the driver tried to get the bus back on the road, it turned over on its side, said Patty McQuillan, spokeswoman for the state Department of Crime Control and Public Safety.
Among the injured, two students hit their heads, and others had broken bones, McQuillan said.
